Red Light Fever
is the second album by the Coattail Riders, the side-project of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. The album features contributions from Foos frontman Dave Grohl. The former Nirvana stickman didn't want to play the drums on the project, but lived up to his reputation as the nicest guy in rock. Hawkins told Musicradar.com
: "Obviously Dave is one of the best drummers of all time – but he's also one of the best rhythm guitarists of all time. He's like the Pete Townsend of our generation. He plays rhythm guitar on almost 90% of the record. If you really want to hear him, it's in the last song, I Don't Think I Trust You Any More – that's pure Dave. He wrote that whole thing and basically gave me it as a gift. I think at one time I did ask him to play drums on one song, and he said, 'Nope, I'm not playing drums on your album.' But I was a little selfish in the drum department, to be honest."
